It's only Rock and Roller but I like it
Good movement in the Midlands at the moment of Common Scoter, Knot and Turnstone.
Flashes this morning Ruff in among the Lapwing 1 Curlew heard. 2 juv Ringed Plover 3 Common Sands and 1 Green. Hedgewatch more productive in sunshine Lesser and Common Whitethroat showing well with male Blackcap and Chiffchaff supporting cast. Stars of the show were the Redstart. Viewed from the path the back of the hedge held an moulting male Redstart, a juv male with defined bib and darker face and also a pale faced female type juv. Red tails flashing up and down the hedge and perching on overhung fence and prominent branches Quite a show for Des and myself. Perfect morning at the Mecca!
Yesterday Morning at the Moors resulted in a Heron feasting on a ready supply of fish and eels, boy were they some whoppers!
Looks like a sizeable Roach later followed by one of the largest eels I've seen in a pool this size. Took the Heron 40 minutes before he managed to swallow this guy.
There was a brief visit by the Kingfisher too.
So pleased that my UFO has been identified as a Bairds Sandpiper. Thanks to John, Phil and Andy for their expertise in identifying it. Hope it stays around long enough for others to see.
